Horsey! Grassroots Public Art Connects People, Past, and Present
"There’s nothing new about the subject of today’s post. In fact, that’s kind of the point. It’s an ongoing grassroots public art initiative that simply exists, and has for quite some time. Many have had the pleasure of experiencing it but many others have not."
"That’s the nature of artistic cultural expression. It happens but it’s not a happening. It lingers and evolves in place, existing over time for serendipitous discovery and contribution by others. Like me."
Scott Doyon talks about the Portland Horse Project to examine how "a major impediment to community building is our frequent unwillingness to accept and contend with the reality of others." And how art can help.
